Mike Watson Wins PCA, Super High Roller Bowl & Gambling Fun Facts

Hey High Rollers, hope all is well. NFL Play-off weekend…some crazy games so far. Did you see Green Bay v Arizona…wow, what an ending. Are you betting? If so click the banners on this page (along right side) and bet with us at Bet Online…great odds, great action, great fun. Good luck.

Sir Watts Strikes Again

We star with Canadian poker sensation Mike Watson. Can this guy play or what? He always seems to be in the mix, usually at High Roller events, and this time at the very prestigious PCA 2016 main event. ‘Sir Watts’ topped  a stacked field of 928 players to take down his 1st EPT title and $728,325. The 31 year old now has more than $9 million in lifetime earnings and boy would we love to have him on the show. What do you say Mike?

“It means a lot to win a main event with a big field and especially the PCA being one of the flagship events of the EPT, and really a premiere event in the whole poker calendar. It has special meaning to me that Steve Paul-Ambrose won it ten years ago. He was a mentor to me and that makes it extra sweet.”

Anthony Gregg finished 2nd.

Special mention to Marty McCormick of Scotland, who qualified for the PCA thru a $27 satellite on PokerStars, finished 13th or smooth g for 50k. Well done sir…and thanks for the drunken entertainment on twitch poker. We’d love to have you on  the show as well Marty.

Super High Roller Bowl

Poker Central, the world’s first 24/7 poker TV network, has announced plans for its second SHB, this time a $300k buy-in with a 49 seat cap. 

“There are few poker events that can change the landscape of the game overnight — the Super High Roller Bowl is one of them. The 2016 Super High Roller Bowl will be even more exciting than last year’s!”

  • Clint Stintcomb

By the way, Brian Rast defeated Scott Seiver last year to claim the whopping $7.5 million first prize.

Did you know? 

Writer Damon Runyon allegedly based the character Sky Masterson, the gambler-hero of The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown (on which the musical Guys and Dolls is based), on legendary gambler Titanic Thompson, who is thought to have taught all of his pro-bet, hustling tricks to Amarillo Slim.

Action Man: One of Titanic Thompson’s partners in “the hustling game” included pool player Mnnesota Fats, who considered Titanic a genius, “the greatest action man of all time”.

Pay Cut?
In an era when top pro golfers were lucky to earn $30,000 a year, Thomas (who, after a misprint in a New York newspaper, let people think his name was Thompson) could make that much in a week hustling rich country club hackers. He was once asked if he would ever turn pro? He replied, “I could not afford the cut in pay”.

A Putt for his Life?
Once, during a discussion about golf, Doyle Brunson said that if he had to pick one guy to make a 10-foot putt for his life it would be Puggy Pearson. Not Nicklaus, nor Palmer, nor Watson. Puggy Pearson!
“He’s the greatest pressure putter I’ve ever seen,” Brunson said.

Big business. Casino gambling in Singapore is worth more than $6 billion in revenue each year, making it one of the top markets in the world. Thing is, Singapore only has two casinos. Yikes.

Archie Karas

Sad to hear this legendary gambler has been placed in Nevada’s infamous Black Book, a list of those banned from all casinos in the state. The man who ran 50 bucks up to $40 million has been caught cheating a number of times. Bad end….makes you wonder about his legendary ‘Run”???
